Wow boy, this hei matau is totally awesome.
For finishing pastes you have wax, clear coat poly (i think it is "vitrificateur" in french but not sure), oil and brilliant, mat or satinee varnishes. These are the only I know. I tried wax that is pretty good for the grain without a brilliant looking, oil that's a bit more shiny and finally satinee varnish that is too much brilliant for me.
You have the stains too but with this color of wood, it would be a crime !
What is the paste you used for polyshing ? It looks perfect on this piece.
